Warning on running "find" command
Hi folks,

LFS 6.1

On running

# find / -name menu.lst
following warning pop

find:Warning: Hard link count is wrong for /proc: this may be a bug in your filesystem driver. Automaticlly turning on find's - noleaf option. Earlier results may have failed to include directories that should have been seen.

However files have been found with full path.

Please help me to understand what it is. Any action to be taken. TIA

I think it's just a bug.


It seems that 'find' compares the hard link count of directories with the number of subdirectories, and prints the above warning if they don't match.

Here's the Redhat bug report

Mayhaps you should upgrade the find utility?
